In-page links - Feature Requests Discussions on Obsidian Portal Community Forums
edited February 2008
So I was trolling around wikipedia and the d20srd (www.d20srd.org) and noticed a pretty useful feature that seemed to be lacking on the wikis: in-page linking (or at least that's what I'm gonna call it).
Here is an example:
"Notice how this link jumps to the section of the page 'Fatigue' is found at?":http://www.d20srd.org/srd/conditionSummary.htm#fatigued
"...While this link only takes you to the page, without jumping you.":http://www.d20srd.org/srd/conditionSummary.htm
I think this would be really useful for those pages which contain multiple sections, like for example, "my history":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/fogdown/wiki/campaign-web/fogdown-history page is divided into different 'republics'. When linking to the page, it would be useful if I could jump users to the exact spot where the information I refer to is found.
On wikipedia, I think this is done by way of indexing feature (i.e. "==section==")
Anyways, what do people think?
Can you do it with html anchor tags?
I tried that for one of my pages for "The Vale", and alas, it did not work that I could see.
I would find this very helpful as well, but like FemmeLegion, I couldn't get it to work... So for now I am just going to make new wiki pages instead of anchors, I suppose.
Yeah, that's perhaps the one feature I'd most like to see...
You could probably cheat using the footnotes feature of the wiki. But yes within page links would be nice.
I believe it should be possible with anchor tags...but upon a little testing it seems not to work.
I'm surprised Textile formatting does not support anchors in this manner.
I'll put this on the todo list and see if I can't come up with something.
Good request, keep them coming.
